About Shtayburne Farm

Shtayburne Farm is owned and operated by Lorin and Alicia Hostetler and family. The Hostetler family has been working with the land and cows  for over four generations. In 2010 we added a creamery and farm store to our family farm. We control every aspect of our cheese creations with great care and passion-from  growing the crops and  milking the cows, to our unique small batch  processing.

Our farmstead cheeses are made in small batches. Attention is given to every detail of our handcrafted cheeses. Some of our select cheddars are then hand waxed.

We are excited to be a part of the Finger Lakes Cheese Alliance. Check out the  Cheese Alliance facebook page or the Cheese Alliance website for upcoming events.

On our grounds you’ll find:

  • A working dairy farm
  • Over 60 head of milk cows
  • A cheese processing facility
  • On-farm cheese shop and tasting room
  • Rich, lush fields

Aged Cheeses

All of our cheese is made with fresh pasteurized milk. The fifteen blends of Cheddar and Monterey Jack can be seen on our product page. They include jalapeno monterey jack and sharp cheddar.

Come visit our shop at the farm and sample some cheese! Our winter hours are 11-4, Friday and Saturday.
